    12.704 @ 117.97mph

    My fastest time so far is a 12.7 @ 117.97mph. What should my car be able to run with a good 60' time . My current 60' on that run was a 2.2! I'm thinking I should be able to run high 11's.

    I guess I'll have to find out next spring. I broke my ring gear again and will not waste my time installing another set of gears this year, especially since the end of the season is basically here.

    Went 11.9 at 117.82 last night.
    1.81 short time.

    You will probably lose a little trap speed when you hook better. But not much.
    Good luck next time out!!!

    My mods are in my signiture. I have an M6 and stock suspension. The current tires that I'm running are BFGoodrich drag radial T/A's 295/35/18. I run about 12psi in them.

    you should be pulling easy 1.6s/7s i have the same DRs and your running them to low of pressure run them at 17 or 18 psi and heat them up and you wont have any spinning issues.

    what clutch do you have? stock rear or 12 bolt?

    def should be mid 11s easy.

    I have the spec 3 clutch, stock 10 bolt with 4.10gears. I would have thought that 17 or 18psi would be too high. By the way, I just broke my ring gear for the second time this year. So therefore the car is parked for the year untill I get a stronger rear and figure out what I'm going to do for suspension.

    w/ 17psi i went 1.53 60' and im on a lowered road race suspension, so for the answer of, is that to high of pressure "no"

    yeah def dont wait anymore money on the 10 bolt and save up for a 12 bolt.

    i was launching from 5300 and slipping the clutch just a hair.

    when i was stock clutch and rear i was going from 4500-5k and slipping it all the way dur to the rear.

    but w/ your rear you should easily hit 1.8s

    I'm surpised you launch at 5300, I figure in the 3500 range should be good for me.

    Heck I spin launching at 3500, My best 60' time was a 2.2 something leaving off an Idle. It bogged for a slight second and then took off. That was better than me leaving at 3500rpms.

    just a thought, but wouldnt you want a smaller wheel tire combo with more sidewall i.e. 295/60/15's

    I do want to get some Welds or something but right now I dont want to spend that kind of money for another set of wheels and tires.
